Every time DH says "Adulting" in context to SS I'm going to...
...take a drink!
Tonight DH informed me that ss33 (he's actually older, but due to privacy we'll just keep him at 33) and his gf broke up, he's moving out of their apt and back in with BM. DH told me that ss mentioned that he was "thinking about" quitting his pot smoking partying lifestyle. DH took that as a sign that ss is finally "Adulting." Really DH, the man child has been an "adult" for well over 15 years now and is just now thinking about quitting acting like an unruly teenager??? And what adult man who is a bastion of maturity moves back in with mommy anytime he has some trouble. He's moved in and out of his mom's and aunt's home several times during the time I've known him.
Apparently ss has been having issues showing up regulary for his yet another new job. How long this one will last who knows. Mommy is there now to help him along until he's "back on his feet"...again. I'm sure i'll continue to hear all about ss's "progress", how well he's "adulting" and he'll probally have another job soon. Seems to happen every few months.
So everytime I hear DH say, ss is "adulting", "mature", "doing so well in his NEW job," "it's a better fit for him" I'm going to do a shot! This grown man who can't keep a woman or a job, smoking pot everyday, living with mama is constantly being praised for his maturity. I am going to be soooo drunk!
What are some phrases your DH/SO says about skids that you'll take a shot to?
